Opirg Toronto in partnership and endorsed by Scarborough Campus Students' Union — SCSU, UTSC MSA, Afghan Students' Association at UTM, UTM MSA, Sba Centre and ECSS will be hosting a Tri Campus speaking tour with Yusuf Faqiri, one of the leaders of the Justice For Soli campaign seeking justice for Soleiman Faqiri, who was killed by guards on December 15, 2016 while in custody at an Ontario correctional facility in Lindsay. The Faqiri family are looking for answers and deserve to know how this could have happened to their beloved son and brother.

Along with discussing the case we will also host panelists who, along with Yusuf, will delve deeper into the history and context of the intersections of Racialization, Islamophobia, and mental health

Panelists will include;

Yusuf Faqiri (One of the leaders of the Justice For Soli campaign and Soleiman Faqiri's brother)
Hanan Jibril (Frontline worker and mental health and anti-racist activist and advocate)
Ahmad Habhab (is a 30 year old, he is a Canadian of Lebanese background dedicated to Social Justice, addressing the occupation of Palestine, & Islamic History.)

Please note that we are still in the process of confirming the details and as such this page will be periodically updated throughout the month of December
